Re: is there any plan for SolydXK EFI/GPT support?

great to hear that. it's not a mayor concern for me since I don't have 2TB HDD and happily converted to conventional MBR but it will be great news for others.

Re: Media content not available in Linux, but it is in Windo

I'm agree with orbmiser. it sounds like an ISP problem since you've mentioned that it working when you was in another country. AFAIK chrome have a feature to save bandwitch. when it activated it will be using something similar with proxy. that explain why the streaming is available on chrome.

Re: SolydC - How to add Cinnamon 2.0 to SolydXK

the latest cinnamon looks 'yummy' but unfortunately I can't stand the bugs and resource usage. cinnamon is a lot heavier compared to XFCE. anyway, yup. the apt-pinning was removed in the two last UP. for the content of /etc/apt/preferences I think it will be enough like this Package: * Pin: release ...

KDE is indeed a wellknown qt based app but it never implies that any qt based app will be use KDE component. the lightness of qt is not because the app will not depends on KDE component but it is because qt is developed towards smartphones and tablets. AFAIK both GTK and qt can run in any DE. your m...

that's also not quite true. whatever GUI did you choose, both gtk based, or gtk based app usually didn't huge dependency. KDE apps indeed, will force you to install huge KDE specific library but not every qt based app depends on KDE library. you can even create an app with qt without using any KDE l...

Re: What language to use to create Linux programs?

C, java, phyton, C++, mono, bash, everything should work. the GUI and the language is two different thing. depends on what your preferences is, you can use GTK or Qt to create GUI of your program.

Re: [request]tlp - linux advance power management

the result depends on how you tune your default setting and modify the grub parameter (pcie_aspm=force or radeon.dpm=1 might needed). I like this tools since it had all power management related configuration in one place and could be easily configured by modifying one file. for a better result I usu...

Re: [request]tlp - linux advance power management

installing it...everything seems good. anyway, the default configuration is good enough but if we want to play with cpu freq and cpu gov we'll need to purge debian's cpufrequtils. tlp already have built in feature to manage them.

Re: PPA on Debian - sort of? Video

ubuntu is based on unstable. when they grow old, their packages will receive some bug fixing and move into testing. at this time, current packages in raring have nearly same version with the one in testing. thus, the incompability issue is not a problem if we're using ppa for raring.

Re: PPA on Debian - sort of? Video

sounds interesting, but no, thanks. I still need debian testing's stability for my daily use. all my ppa package almost never install any dependency or already satisfied with everything on testing. even if I got unsatisfied dependency I'll prefer to use ppa for older version such as quantal or raring.
